Many people with eating disorders have a history of traumatic experiences, but I also believe that the eating disorder is a traumatic experience itself. When we treat eating disorders, we are treating trauma. People with eating disorders are often very accomplished because they are so hard-working and caring, but I always find myself wondering, what more could their life hold for them in recovery? How much more could they enjoy their accomplishments and their lives? In addition to my family/individual work with eating disorders, we offer an intensive outpatient program for trauma, promoting safety and support form trauma therapy.

Seeking therapy can often feel like a scary and foreign concept. My job is to provide a safe place for you, your family or your child to process life's complications and unload the burdens and losses that are too difficult to be faced with alone. In all of my work, self-esteem and identity formation are a key ingredient. I believe that the skills and strengths it takes to create a life where we are fulfilled and loved already exists within all of us, we just need a little help to harness them. I want to help you identify your skills and values, find self-compassion, and find the courage to try new behaviors and to reach new goals.

If you or a loved one are struggling at work, school, or in relationships, a psychological assessment may be an important first step in any intervention plan. I have over 15-years experience in evaluating children, adolescents and adults with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, personality disorders, psychosis, trauma (physical and psychological), and learning disorders. I aim to help a person, his or her family, and/or outpatient treater to better understand the core issues, specifically those issues that are getting in the way of a person functioning productively in school, work, interpersonally, and/or emotionally.

I also like helping clients achieve their personal and career goals. I have over 20 years experience working with adults, families, and children.

Becoming a mother can be one of the most beautiful transitions in your life while also being one of the most challenging times you may ever face. No one can prepare you for what it means to be a parent. Everything from feelings of shame, guilt, and inadequacy to sleep deprivation and hormonal changes can turn this beautiful life transition into a state of isolation and loneliness. Even though there are thousands of people becoming new parents everyday, it can feel like you are completely alone, isolated even from those that love you the most.

My practice centers around providing clients with the skills that they need to thrive in the face of stressful situations. Prior to entering private practice, I worked as a clinical psychologist on the spinal cord injury unit at TIRR. These individuals would have never otherwise sought mental health care but were faced with one of the most stressful and challenging experiences of their lives. My role was to help these individuals to effectively cope with serious, adverse medical events and to live happy, fulfilling lives. Likewise, in my private practice, I strive to help clients successfully navigate complex situations.

"Helping you change the things that you can." It's the tagline on my business card and a familiar suggestion from the well-known Serenity Prayer. It points out two things I look for in clients that I believe will be successful - the desire to change and knowing what that is (and isn't). With an open mind and the willingness to consider a different perspective you'll be amazed at the freedom you'll encounter to once again take charge of the things in your life you want to change.

As we navigate our lives, we are faced with life transitions. These changes can trigger anxiety, depression or other feelings. Often transitions can challenge our existing belief systems, which in turn, cause confusion and feelings of distress. Having someone who can truly listen and understand these challenges often helps us find our way to a more satisfying life. Sorting through the clutter of our lives and zeroing in on our true selves can help us optimize our happiness and contentment. Living a life in which we thrive not merely survive. In a highly confidential environment, we start wherever you feel comfortable.

Embrace life, not forgetting about the past, the negative/ traumatic event(s) endured, or that person that hurt you. Instead, take that hurt, pain, dysfunction, and transform it into YOUR new narrative.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in River Oaks, Houston can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
